.s. as trying to contain china which is ridiculous. the united states has tried to integrate china into the international system. the hard liners have lost touch with reality in a sense. jenna: there is so much happening around the globe. a lot of our attention right now is focused on the middle east. we see some of our top officials, including the president traveling to asia, is that a good move or strategy at this moment? >> that's a good strategy in the sense that we really need to pay much more attention to the periphery around china these countries are asking the u.s. for more leadership. as you point out this is the first time a sitting american president has visited burma and cambodia. you have secretary clinton who is there, defense secretary panetta. the other thing we've got to remember is this is not the only part of the world that needs attention, because while we are looking at asia and that is a really good thing the chinese are trying to take one of our bases in the azors, and if they do that they will be dominant in the atlanta atlantic. jenna: which base is that. >

. but there is a certain fair amount of judgment from our side that the united states will get over that. you had a major leadership change in time and it happens every ten years and we do fly a lost executives around the world into and out of china and we believe by the time the first quarter is over, that a lot of that political uncertainty which was in place for a fair amount during 2012, that will be out of the way and the growth will pick up again and early signs of that is in place, but, again, it is that global hunt for resources which is drying our business and that is as it relates to the united states companies the same thing. for instance, in --. >>neil: it is booming. something is going on with private jets in general, the hassle of flying commercial, whatever, but it is more than just a c.e.o. or movie or entertainment crowd that are flying these. >>guest: it is used as a business tool. so, we have to do away with the image of something that is a luxury and flashy. it is a business tool and it gets accepted and is effective an the world and we are basically flying the point to point destinat
